Alberto Cozzi Rilegatore

For over 100 years, the Cozzi name has long been synonymous with bookbinding, paper marbling, and faithful restoration of centuries-old volumes. In a city where traditions run deep, Alberto and Nella’s great-grandchildren; Francesca, Massimo, and Litizia; alongside their parents Paolo and Nelly, maintain traditional methods handed down for five generations.

Specialty papers from Umbria, Pescia, and Amalfi, leathers from tanneries in Santa Croce near Pisa, and 23-karat gold leaf are among the many supplies needed for authentic restorations and the making of stationery products. Hand-sewn bookbinding, doratura (the art of gilding), leatherworking and paper marbling are all traditional techniques that are used by the Cozzi family in their labor of love.
